Problems with Fluxbox

This may be a daft question but here goes...

Ever since i started using Linux, I have always used Gnome, or a combination of Enlightenment & Gnome. I fancied a change so i have installed Fluxbox. I like the window manager and how it works etc.. BUT, when I use a program like Firefox or Mozilla, fonts etc.. are considerably bigger than everything else. I think this is a GTK thing but I'm not sure. Is there any way I can change the size? Can anyone help?

I'm using Slackware 10.

Thanks in advance.

I always launch the gnome-control-center and it loads the daemons and processes to control the fonts in the GTK driven applications. Haven't really had time to hack around more to fix this issue but having it load at startx time seems to work without any fussing..

You can insert a line with the command in your ~/.fluxbox/startup file. Remember to put an "&" at the end of the line.
